Welcome to the Division of Pediatric Anesthesia and Pain Medicine of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) located at Arkansas Children’s Hospital (ACH). The anesthesiologists, certified registered nurse anesthetists, and staff are dedicated to providing care, love, and hope to their patients throughout the perioperative period. All ACH-based anesthesiologists are physician faculty members of UAMS.

ACH is the only hospital system in the state solely dedicated to caring for children, which allows our organization to uniquely shape the landscape of pediatric care in Arkansas. We are driven by four core values:  safety, teamwork, compassion, and excellence. These values inform every decision and every action, from the aggressive pursuit of zero hospital infections to treating each family with dignity, kindness, and concern. These core values fundamentally guide our work at Arkansas Children’s.

The hospital spans 36 city blocks and is currently licensed for 336 beds. We have a staff of approximately 505 physicians, and over 200 residents in pediatrics and pediatric specialties. Additionally, the hospital currently employs more than 4,400 employees.

Arkansas Children’s Hospital has achieved Magnet Status from the American Nurses Credentialing Center, is a Level 1 Children’s Surgical Center by the American College of Surgeons through its Children’s Surgery Verification Quality Improvement Program (ACS CSV), and is nationally recognized Level 1 Trauma Center.
